After weeks of teasing, Venom finally makes his appearance on The CW's The Spectacular Spider-Man this Saturday, and we've got your exclusive first look. The alien menace, a popular Spidey villain from the comics and last year's Spider-Man 3, bonded to Peter Parker two episodes ago. On this week's episode, "Intervention" (airing June 7 at 10 am/ET) Peter fights back, forcing the symbiote to look for a new host - paging Pete's pal Eddie Brock! - and take on the form of the slithery, fanged Venom.

The episode, the second to last of Season 1, was written by the series' supervising producer, Greg Weisman, and directed by David Bullock, who helmed the recent DVD movie Justice League: The New Frontier. - Rich Sands
